Love is the essence of our lives. When in love, everything around you feels eccentric and too good to be true. It is undoubtedly the ultimate feeling but it can also be the worst if the ball is not in your court. Letting go of someone you still love can be the toughest part. Then what is it about letting go of someone we love that makes us numb?
When we love someone so dearly, our heart doesn’t always work in tandem with our minds. But sometimes, it is best to follow your subconscious mind than your heart and take the necessary step, no matter how heartbreaking it is, to keep yourself away from hurt and disappointments. For that, you need to know when it is time to step back and let go. Here are just the right signs you need to know when it is time to walk away.
1. You Both Are Not On The Same Page
When you are in a relationship, the feeling of being loved and having someone you love can also go sideways if you take each other for granted. As this continues, a series of arguments and contrasting opinions come along. If you feel that misunderstandings and incessant fights are a part of your daily life, it’s time you understand that you and your partner are not on the same page anymore. Sure, compromises can be made to brush things up but it won’t settle things completely.
2. Your Friends And Family Don’t Support Your Relationship
Being in love not also entails families getting involved in the latter stages. When something goes wrong, our family and friends tend to notice it too. Sometimes, a third-person perspective can help you pin down or notice aspects that you may not. Understand their opinions about you, your partner, and your relationship and see if that holds true. After all, all they wish for you is happiness, and if you agree with what they have to say, maybe it’s time you reconsider things from your end.
3. If You Are The Only One Putting Efforts
Are you the only one putting in all the efforts? Do things seem to change in a way that you feel is just one-sided? A relationship can never sustain if it doesn’t have both partners working hand-in-hand to keep it alive. It can affect you mentally, physically, and emotionally and it impacts directly in your relationship. When your partner stops putting his/her side of efforts, it’s a clear sign something is amiss. Pave way for what’s better to come into your life and step back.
4. Getting Attracted To Other People
Have you been recently talking to someone else and feel intensely attracted to them even though you’re in a relationship? Has your partner been spending a significant amount of time with someone else? If answers to such questions are yes, then it’s a sign things are heading towards an end. It is quite normal to find someone attractive but if you not if it is getting seriously attracted to that person. If that is the case, it is time for you to have a sit-down.
5. You Go On and Off Regularly
Constant breakup and patch-ups are not healthy for any relationship. It doesn’t take a lot of time for things to turn toxic during this time. Of course, staying with them after all this while can mean that it is meant to be but it still does not make things right. However, if mistakes seem to keep repeating and you break up for the same reasons, the best decision is to finally end things up even it is the hardest part.
